I’ve gotten into a bad habit lately, and I’m guessing some of you have, too.
I used to talk with people in person more often, or at least I’d give them a call. Now I just e-mail or text them. It’s so much easier.
Here in the office, if I need to ask someone a question or talk with her or him briefly, I could get out of my chair and walk down the hall and do it face-to-face. Instead, I tap away on my keyboard.
I know—e-mail is more efficient. The rules of face-to-face communication seem to require a bit of personal conversation (“How was your weekend?”) that can sidetrack us.
